    AVHS Dad? are you from Amador Valley (Pleasanton)? I just got accepted to GT and I go to Foothill!
  • TheRoadTheRoad Posts: 356Registered User Member
    @neptune, you need to remove the spaces after the brackets. The person added spaces there so it wouldn't do the whole formatting while he's setting up the "format."

    So far, the statistics show a decent SAT score and a decent GPA are what Georgia Tech has been accepting. I'm kind of surprised zaqw didn't make it seeing he's from Kansas but then, Georgia Tech is public. What you can do is keeping hoping; there's a college for you out there and being wait-listed at Georgia Tech isn't the end of the world. ALSO, you can mail them a letter about how you really want to attend there and give a reason why, basically write another essay. Just remember, TONS of people apply to Georgia Tech but don't attend meaning many from the wait-list will be accepted. You still have hope! :)

    Good luck and congrats to everyone who's made it.
